The Wait’s Riel Roch Decter & It Felt Like Love’s Laura Wagner Summoned to Sundance’s Creative Producing Summit

28 July 2014 8:40 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

As we know, a passage through the many Sundance labs doesn’t guarantee a gold ticket for Park City in January, but undoubtably its certainly a professional nudge in the right direction. A total of nine films (5 fiction) will be heading to the Labs (July 28 – August 1) with this year’s Creative Advisors including folk we’ve mentioned on several occasion here in Paul Mezey (Beasts of the Southern Wild), Pam Koffler (Boys Don’t Cry), Jay Van Hoy (Love is Strange) and Julie Lynn (Albert Nobbs). Among this year’s summer camp for film producers we have the likes of Riel Roch Decter (who produced 2013 SXSW entry The Wait

from helmer M. Blash) and producer Laura Wagner (from Eliza Hittman’s It Felt Like Love fame). Here are the projects and producers heading up to the mythic location. Press release follows.

Attention, Filmmakers: These 4 Tips from Cine Gear Expo Could Help You Shoot Your Documentary

9 June 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At the Canon-sponsored panel “Let’s Talk Docs” session at the 2014 Cine Gear Expo in Los Angeles, non-fiction cinematographers Nicola Marsh ("20 Feet From Stardom," "Burn"), Rick Rowley ("Dirty Wars"), Nick Higgins ("The Crash Reel," "The Lion's Mouth") and Jerry Ricciotti (HBO’s "Vice") shared stories from the frontlines. Even though each had a different approach to how they work in the typically run-and-gun atmosphere of documentary filmmaking, they all had good advice to disperse to the audience mostly full of other filmmakers. Here are their top tips: 1. Your gear should help, not hinder you -- and the best camera might not be the most expensive one. "The first thing I think about is how long the camera is going to be on my shoulder. It’s nice to shoot on a Pl lens, but I can’t have that on my shoulder all day. I don’t want to have »

This Week in Netflix Recommends Coming-of-Age Films Mud, Fish Tank, Paranoid Park, and More

21 March 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Netflix is a pretty great and incredibly powerful service.  Our queues (I'm sorry, "lists" now) fill up with movies and TV shows, and it can be overwhelming.  A good approach is narrowing it down to maybe one or two new additions that you can watch this weekend, and save other movies from your list for weekdays.  This week, our partners at Complex Media are recommending the coming-of-age films Mud, Fish Tank, and Paranoid Park.  I strongly agree with their choices of Mud and Fish Tank (I haven't seen Paranoid Park).  If you're looking for other new additions to check out, you should also make time for Gattaca, Archer: Season 4, and this year's Oscar winner for Best Documentary, 20 Feet from Stardom (its fellow nominees—The Act of Killing, Cutie and the Boxer, Dirty Wars, and The Square—are also available on Netflix). Hit the jump to check out Complex Media's video explaining why Mud, »

Oscars 2014: Gravity dominates, but 12 Years a Slave wins best film

3 March 2014 4:26 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Alfonso Cuarón's space thriller takes seven awards, but loses out to 12 Years a Slave for best picture

• How the night unfolded

• Full list of winners

Gravity may be set in space, but it achieved a landslide at the 86th Academy Awards, taking seven Oscars, while 12 Years a Slave went home with three.

Through its UK producer, David Heyman, Gravity qualifies as a British film, and its Oscar wins come in the wake of the best British film award at the Bafta ceremony. Amanda Nevill, CEO of the BFI, the UK's lead film agency said: "We join the whole British film industry in congratulating Steve McQueen on the awards for his remarkable and important film, 12 Years A Slave, and Alfonso Cuarón whose astonishing film, Gravity was made right here in the UK. Our industry continues to punch above its weight, with exceptional creative talent and world-leading practitioners, infrastructure and facilities »

Why ‘12 Years a Slave’ Is the Most Satisfying Oscar Winner in Years

3 March 2014 4:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: All is right with the universe. Not sure I felt this way going in, but as it turns out, the Oscar race was all about race. As Ellen DeGeneres joked at the top of the telecast, “Possibility No. 1: ‘12 Years a Slave’ wins best picture. Possibility No. 2: You’re all racists. And now please welcome our first white presenter, Anne Hathaway … ”

And yet, the evening proved to be incredibly diverse, both in its presenters and in its recipients. Of course, “12 Years” did go on to win, reflecting the Academy’s deep admiration for a film that tackles a subject the industry has been largely remiss in addressing. Though I hope its choices were indeed made from the heart, as opposed to on behalf of an actual agenda, such recognition is especially encouraging in light of the Los Angeles Times investigation that estimated the Academy’s 5,765 active voting members to be 94% white. »

List of 2014 Oscar Winners!

3 March 2014 11:30 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The 86th annual Academy Awards were really fun to watch. Ellen Degeneres did a fantastic job hosting, and I enjoyed the show she put on. It was also insanely predictable, at least, for me it was. Overall, I'm happy with all of the films that won. My favorite win of the the night was Spike Jonze taking home the Oscar for Best Original screenplay for Her. That was such an amazing movie, and I really wanted it to win that award, but I wasn't sure it would happen. My favorite speech of the night came from Best Actor winner Matthew McConaughey. I was never really a big fan of his, but over the last couple of years he has sure blown up into an amazing actor who has starred in some really incredible films. Then that speech he gave last night won me over, and now I'm on team McConaughey. »

Hard-hitting slavery drama starring Chiwetel Ejiofor becomes first film from black director to win top Academy award

• How the night unfolded

• Full list of winners

12 Years a Slave has won the best picture Oscar at the 86th Academy Awards, defeating a nine-strong field that included Gravity, The Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle for the headline prize at this year's ceremony. 12 Years a Slave becomes the first film from a black director to take the best picture Oscar.

Directed by Steve McQueen, the landmark slavery drama stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as a free man kidnapped and sold to slaveowners in 19th-century Louisiana. It was based on the bestselling memoir by Solomon Northup, first published in 1853. 12 Years a Slave follows McQueen's award-winning dramas Hunger and Shame, and was produced by among others Brad Pitt's Plan B outfit. Pitt also takes a small but pivotal role as abolitionist carpenter Samuel Bass. »

Gravity Wins 7 Academy Awards; 12 Years A Slave Takes Best Picture – 86th Oscars

2 March 2014 9:29 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

After a lengthy awards season that lasted three long months, the race for the Oscars came to a conclusion tonight at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

This year’s 86th Academy Awards saw a split between Best Picture and Director. 12 Years A Slave won three, including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong’o.

Backstage, producer/actor Brad Pitt said, “ I love this movie.  I ‑‑ just as a film, as a lover of film, the filmmaking, the ‑‑ this heroic story of a man in this inhumane situation trying to get back to his family.  I love this film.  I love the filmmaking.  It’s counterintuitive to the way we’re making films today.  It’s a real achievement by Mr. McQueen here.  I love this movie.  I think it’s important.  I think it’s important because it deals with our history that we haven »

2014 Oscars Winners: '12 Years a Slave' Takes Best Picture

2 March 2014 8:56 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2014 Oscar Awards have been handed out and it to no real surprise... there were few surprises as 12 Years a Slave took home Best Picture as well as Best Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong'o) and Best Adapted Screenplay (John Ridley) while Gravity, unsurprisingly, ended up taking home the night's largest number of wins with seven, none bigger than a Best Director win for Alfonso Cuaron. In the acting categories the only category that seemed up for grabs was Supporting Actress, but as I said, that went to Lupita, which may have something to do with Jennifer Lawrence wearing red... I learned on E! that no one wearing red has ever won the Oscar. Yeah, that's hard-hitting journalism right there. Dallas Buyers Club co-stars Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto won Best Actor and Supporting Actor respectively while Cate Blanchett took home her second Oscar, winning Best Actress for Blue Jasmine.
